Values & Beliefs
I am a Christian first and foremost. I know Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. I attend church at 2nd Presbyterian in Memphis. I was raised by two loving parents who instilled the value of hard work. I’ve been beyond blessed to wake up, go to work and help people. I’ve created and built businesses my entire life and believe in the value of hard work.
I’ve been beyond blessed financially and am proud to say that I will not be swayed by lobbyists or special interest groups. I honestly and genuinely do not need their money. I am willing to spend my own money to work for you, the people of West Tennessee. I will go to Washington with an unwavering loyalty to the people of West Tennessee and an unmatched work ethic. No one will outwork me.
I believe Congress truly failed us by not repealing Obamacare. Despite empty promises from career politicians and the Establishment, we thought Obamacare would be repealed in January 2017, when Republicans took a majority control of the Senate, House and Presidency. The extremely flawed healthcare bill has yet to be repealed and continues to crush small business owners, doctors and patients across the country. As a physician and small business owner, I bring a unique perspective to the table in knowing how to bridge the gap to provide relief for everyone.
Our country faces a growing number of threats, whether it’s from tangible enemies like North Korea and ISIS or through enemies you cannot physically see, such as cyber warfare. Protecting our people, assets and allies begins with a strong military. Our Congress should be working to supply our military with the tools, equipment and personnel they need to keep us safe and on the cutting edge of the latest technology.
Jobs & The Economy
As a small business owner and entrepreneur, I have personally created hundreds of jobs in my lifetime through the expansion of my medical practice, broadcasting stations and other business ventures. My background in engineering and medicine have afforded me the opportunity to think outside the box when it comes to business in the private sector. I’m ready to take my skills to Washington to solve problems and create solutions.
Pro 2nd Amendment & Pro-Life
I am a 100% pro-2nd Amendment candidate. In fact, I have my concealed carry permit and own guns. I own guns that I enjoy shooting out on the range and guns that are rare and collectible.
I am a 100% protector of the unborn. We need to continue our work in informing expectant mothers that every life is precious and that life begins at conception.
I am absolutely in favor of instituting term limits for Congress. I think 12 years of service is ample time to make a positive impact for your constituents. Politicians should not be able to make a career out of Representing us. 12 years of service would be equal to two terms in the U.S. Senate or six terms in the U.S. House of Representative.
Saying “NO” to Money From Lobbyists / Special Interest Groups
As I’ve stated before, I don’t need money– I’ve been successful in the private sector. Which is why I am saying “NO” to money from lobbyists and special interest groups. By declining their money, I will be bound only to the people of West Tennessee. Too many Washington politicians accept money from lobbyists and special interest groups. Accepting that money means they are voting to protect special interests and lobbyists– NOT US.
